New standard allows DisplayPort to deliver UHD video

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has released it's new DisplayPort standard. DisplayPort Dual-Mode 1.1 will allow computers and monitors to support higher resolutions and new functionality, such as Ultra HD images through a single cable, as well as a number of refinements that will improve interoperability.

The new standard will allow for a higher data rate for DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable adapters, rising up to 297MHz from 165MHz, and in turn supports HDMI 1.4 resolutions. As well as allowing a 4K or 2K-resolution image to be transferred using one cable instead of multiple cables, it will also support 3D 1080p imagery at 60Hz.

An updated DisplayPort Dual-Mode Cable Adapter Compliance Test Specification has also been announced, which must be met by display adapter manufacturers if they wish to display the DisplayPort logo on a Dual-Mode-compatible product.

Devices compatible with the new standard are expected to go on sale later this year.
